Yes, she was also from Bangladesh. Not that you would know. You see, it is kind of amazing really. Companies are hired that have real people that just go into forums like this and start to post, sometime just weird bad English, about the thread they are in. They do this to slowly raise their post count knowing that links and the like can not be used usually until X posts are made. Then the spam starts.
In this case, the system spam detection system caught the person after making 6 posts in 6 differnt sections within X amount of time. (Something a new user would normally would not do usually.) So it flags the account and alerts us and we then look to take action. Then BAM, all the posts are deleted and the account is banned.
In this case, Mike also looked to remove quoted content and thus your post was caught up in it. Sorry. Learning curve for us also.
Good response though you made. If you want I can reopen that post if needed.
Just thought you may find the spam thing interesting.
Don't feel bad...Lots of people respond to such spammers. I have.
